The survey – the first of a series of surveys which will be available to residents throughout the scheme’s trial period – will be open for six weeks and closes on Sunday 28 August. The survey seeks to understand current levels of support for the scheme overall, and whether residents have any comments about specific locations or aspects of the scheme.
Westy residents will receive an update letter from the council from Friday 15 July with information about how to complete the survey. This letter will also be sent to parents via schools, and uploaded on the council website at warrington.gov.uk/central-6-streets-plan, alongside a link to the survey, which will open at 9am on Monday 18 July.
Cabinet member for highways and transportation, Cllr Hans Mundry, said: “We want to hear from our residents about this scheme – whether you support it, oppose it or aren’t sure yet. This feedback will inform to any future decisions about the scheme, including whether it should be made permanent or not.
“We have previously said that LTNs are one challenging subject of many potentially difficult conversations we will need to have with our communities if we are to truly address our climate, air quality and health goals. We see LTNs as being important projects to help us achieve our ambitions for Warrington and know they can be a useful tool to reduce traffic in local neighbourhoods, creating more safe spaces for people to walk, skate or cycle.
“We have also said that we will continue to listen to resident feedback, which will help to shape future decisions. We have been very clear that we will keep engaging with our communities about this type of scheme, and this survey is the next opportunity.
“We have equally said that we will continue to review plans for the Orford LTN scheme and are committed to re-consulting on the approach for this scheme. We appreciate the patience of our communities while we prepare for further consultation in Orford and a further announcement will be made in the coming weeks. For now, we very much welcome views on those who live in and around Westy about this local scheme.”
